Wesleyan FoundationArea: UK
Deadline: rolling (quarterly)

Wesleyan, the specialist financial mutual, aims to give up to £1 million a year to good causes throughout the UK. The Wesleyan Foundation was launched in May 2017 to provide financial support for great causes that are important to its members, customers and the communities in which they live and work.

Every quarter Wesleyan invites its customers and supporters of the chosen causes to vote for the cause they would most like to support. The more votes a cause gets, the bigger the share of support it receives. The Foundation supports both local community groups and charities nationwide. Its four core themes are:

  • Health
  • Education
  • Social development
  • Innovation

Wesleyan partners with the Heart of England Community Foundation, who administer the fund and distribute it to organisations across the UK. Three levels of funding will be awarded, including small grants of £2,000 and under, medium-sized awards of between £2,000 and £10,000 and discretionary, large grants of more than £10,000.
